For a long time downtown Bothell, WA was cute, small and adorably outdated. Compared to just a few years ago, downtown Bothell is rapidly growing unrecognizable. Well, except for the old Anderson School. We reported a long time ago about McMenamins and the plan to save and re-purpose the old school and create a multidimensional community space. (See our previous posts about this project.)
Earlier this week I posted a story about the growth of craft beer in 2014, reporting that for the first time craft beer captured a double-digit share of the nation’s $100 billion beer market, accounting for 11 percent of all beer sales in 2014. What I failed to report was the remarkable fact that in 2014 craft beer volume sales increased over 17 percent and dollar sales were up 20.5 percent. So what spurred this kind of staggering industry growth?
Demand for design services fell again in September according to the latest Architecture Billings Index (ABI) from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The last time the ABI posted two consecutive months of a decrease in design services was back in the summer of 2012. It’s too early to say whether this recent downturn is a reason to panic or if it’s just a bump in the road.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
